At Ricoh, we believe that long-term business sustainability requires balancing economy, society and the environment. It is this belief that has seen Ricoh New Zealand continue to remain profitable and grow every year for the past 10 years. Our success can be attributed to several key factors, the first being that Ricoh focuses on working with our customers to deliver solutions that add value through effective document management processes, energy-efficient copiers and printers, and software solutions that help to reduce operating costs. These products and services enable Ricoh customers to lower their environmental impact and motivate them to make positive and sustainable changes to their own business practices. Ricoh also strives to add value to our employees. Our people play a major role in helping us maintain our position as a market leader, so we actively encourage all employees to share their ideas to ensure that innovation and sustainability remain integral parts of Ricoh’s business activities going forward. Another key component in Ricoh’s sustainability position is our continued commitment to reducing our business impact on the environment. This extends from recycling product packaging, used toner cartridges and machines that have reached the end of their useful life. In addition, Ricoh voluntarily offsets the carbon emissions associated with the use of Ricoh machines by customers. Ricoh will continue to pursue best practice in the areas of sustainability and the environment throughout all aspects of our business operations.
